When is Sukkot in 2016?

When is Sukkot in 2016?

 Email

The joyous holiday of Sukkot is observed on the Jewish calendar dates of 15-21 Tishrei and is immediately followed by the holiday of Shemini Atzeret and Simchat Torah.

Sukkot is observed from October 16 (at sundown) - October 23 in the evening in 2016

Here are the coinciding secular dates for Sukkot for upcoming years:

2017:   October 4 (at sundown) - 11. October 11 (at sundown) - 13

2018:   September 23 (at sundown) - 30. September 30 (at sundown) - November 2

2019:   October 13 (at sundown) - 20. October 20 (at sundown) - 23

2020:   October 2 (at sundown) - 9. October 9 (at sundown) - 11

Note: The Jewish calendar date begins at sundown of the night beforehand. Thus all holiday observances begin at sundown on the secular dates listed, with the following day being the first full day of the holiday. Jewish calendar dates conclude at nightfall.

The first two days of Sukkot (from sundown of the first date listed, until nightfall two days later) are full-fledged, no-work-allowed holiday days. The subsequent days are Chol Hamoed, when work is allowed, albeit with restrictions. The final day of Sukkot is known as Hoshana Rabbah.

The holiday of Sukkot is immediately followed by the holiday of Shemini Atzeret/Simchat Torah.
